Party City Gives Costumes and Smiles to Children Facing Cancer at Annual Candlelighters NYC Event

Special Appearance by PJ Masks Characters at Event Where Kids Received Exclusive Access to Their Favorite Halloween Costumes.

/EIN News/ -- ELMSFORD, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Families facing pediatric cancer participated in a unique Halloween experience at Party City’s NYC location on 14th Street, thanks to the Company’s continued support of Candlelighters NYC, a non-profit organization supporting children with cancer. The Manhattan store hosted an early, exclusive open house for registered Candlelighters NYC families where kids chose their favorite costumes and accessories from the store’s extensive selection, generously donated by Party City and Gerry Rittenberg, Director.

This year’s event was even more exciting for the families in attendance. Entertainment One (eOne) added to the Candlelighters NYC’s guests’ day with a special appearance and meet and greet with the heroic trio from its hit preschool TV series, PJ Masks. The show’s main characters, Catboy, Owlette, and Gekko, were there to provide the children a truly magical experience.

“Our goal was to create as many smiles as we can for our special families. Party City’s incredible generosity - combined with the SUPER addition of PJ Masks - did just that,” said Barbara Zobian, Founder and Executive Director, Candlelighters NYC. “Every year, the event is an unforgettable experience for our kids just when they need it most.”

This is the third year Party City has opened its doors for Candlelighters NYC families. Since 2011, the Company has raised over $18 million dollars overall in donations and fundraising, with a focus on creating smiles for children.
